  • Yield: Makes about 1 1/4 dozen
  • Hands-on:45 Minutes
  • Total:1 Hour, 50 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 3/4 cups butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • Parchment paper
  • 2 cups cinnamon-raisin swirl peanut butter (such as Peanut Butter & Co.)

Preparation

1. Stir together 2 cups flour, 1 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar, 3/4 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Stir together cocoa and remaining 1 2/3 cups flour, 1 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar, 3/4 tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 tsp. salt in another medium bowl.

2. Beat butter, vanilla, 2 cups sugar, and 1 tsp. cinnamon at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Spoon half of butter mixture into cocoa mixture; spoon remaining butter mixture into flour mixture.

3. Beat plain batter until just blended; beat chocolate batter until just blended. Chill both mixtures 30 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 350°. Stir together remaining 1/3 cup sugar and 3 tsp. cinnamon in a small bowl. Drop plain dough by level tablespoonfuls onto aluminum foil. Top each with 1 Tbsp. chocolate dough; roll together into a ball. Roll in cinnamon-sugar; place 3 inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets, and flatten.

5. Bake at 350° for 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned, lightly tapping baking sheets halfway through to deflate cookies. Cool 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks, and cool.

6. Spread about 2 Tbsp. peanut butter onto half of cookies; top with remaining cookies.
